“God is in this place”

Guest post by Erin, an active volunteer at The Billy Graham Library

The first time I experienced the Billy Graham Library was at Christmastime. I remember being blown away, realizing this little oasis was right in my own backyard, and I didn’t even know it existed. Christmas was an especially nice time to visit, with the live Nativity and all the beautiful lights. I remember having this overwhelming feeling of joy just to be there on the grounds. Everyone was so kind. I remember being so surprised to have greeters open the door for us as me and my friend arrived.

While I went through the tour, I really didn’t know what to expect. I soon realized, my eyes couldn’t help but well up with tears as I listened to Billy Graham share the good news of Jesus Christ. I soaked up every part of the galleries. I honestly wasn’t expecting to be so touched by this place, but I surely was. Since then, I have become a regular volunteer at the Library. I’ve realized that this place is such an instrument that God uses. I have grown as a Christian, and I learn something new every time I come to the Library. The feeling of joy I felt the first time I visited here has never left. I know that it’s not the building itself, but God is in this place. It’s not about Billy Graham but about a man’s journey – a man who allowed God to use him. I thank God for the opportunity to be a part of the Billy Graham Library. I encourage everyone to visit and witness what God is doing here.
